The dude abides…
Please help me welcome Cameron Bahan of stilldaddy.net. Cameron is a Florida based recently divorced single father of two. He’s a software developer by day and blogger by night at stilldaddy.net. He has recently been through the meat grinder and like me, has had a very difficult 2015. Listen to Cameron and I talk about moving completely across the United States, Rambo knives, Earthquakes, Hurricane parties and the dude abides…
Cameron; like myself and many others, is in a vulnerable state and still in the unknown unsteady phase of a recently single father. Grappling with new role, identity, fears and the great unknown future. The biggest difference between Cameron and others is that he has the stones to blatantly share his story via his blog at stilldaddy.net. Go check out his material because it’s spot on and well written- but not before you listen to our conversation.
Cameron drops truth, wisdom and hope. These are the gems I have been searching for and I think you have been too.
